Bacon-Wrapped Cod & Hollandaise

This recipe is an adaptation of a Jamie Oliver recipe that screamed to be enhanced by my father’s hollandaise recipe. The Hollandaise is so good, to just put lemon juice in mayo is almost sacrilege.

The Shopping List:
Any favorite White Fish: Cod, Halibut, Monk Fish.
I have been more aware of trying to avoid imported fish or previously frozen. Who wants fish from China? It just does not make sense to eat something caught half a world away. Go for fresh, never frozen. Though I admit I love sea bass.
Olive Oil
1 Lemon
Your favorite Hickory Smoked Bacon
Sides: Fresh Asparagus Spears and your favorite Rice.
2 sticks butter
3 eggs

You will need a blender.
3 egg yolks
2 sticks of butter
pinch of salt
pinch of red pepper
2 tblsp lemon juice

Directions: Start your rice side. Then season the fish with pepper, rosemary and lemon zest and wrap in bacon. In an oven-safe saute pan, sear the fish on both sides and the slide pan in a 350-400 degree oven for about 15 min. I also included the  fresh asparagus spears in a separate roasting pan in the same oven, seasoned with olive oil and montreal steak seasoning. While the fish and veggies are roasting, crack 3 egg yolks in your blender and add lemon juice and seasoning. Melt 2 sticks of butter for 2 minutes in the microwave or until boiling. Turn on blender and VERY slowly pour the boiling butter into the egg yolk mixture. This slow pour cooks the eggs and makes the simplest hollandaise ever!

Serve it all sauced and fresh! Enjoy!

Recipe by is the most amazing bacon roll BBQ recipe! Make it as hors d’oeuvres for your next party and listen to the groans of pleasure as people put this bacon-loving bite in their mouths! No time? Order one already made from the BBQ addicts website! I personally look forward to experimenting with different sausage blends and bacon cure techniques that can bring different, yet subtile flavor combinations to the mix. With the addition of a regional BBQ sauce, the flavor style can be endless. Yet – another layer, your smoking BBQ’ing fire style. If you give it a try, post back your results!

Wonder what wine would go with this?
